My thoughts on politics, religion, society, technology and other areas of life.
Gee, you're still riled up aren't you? Heh heh.Just goes to show that nobody is right about everything. Or it could be as some have suggested - that Ralph is actually a closet liberal.Or he could just be going senile.
One thing Conservatives are not good at and that is the united front. Liberals are much better at it. They can really tow the party line. RK is speaking his mind... and as great as that can be sometimes, this is one of those times where it's not good.He's probably right about us getting another minority government. I think he's wrong about it being a Liberal minority... at least, I hope he's wrong.
Ralph can't leave the Premier office fast enough for me.He's been absolutely useless for the last five years.I'll give him a LOT of credit prior to 5 years ago though.
An endorsement from Ralph Klein doesn't necessarily help the tories (especially in the east) as demonstrated in the 2004 election.If anything the Conservatives look better by placing some distance between themselves and Klein.By the way, Klein was briefly in the Liberal Party of Alberta...http://thecanadianencyclopedia.com/index.cfm?PgNm=TCE&Params=M1ARTA0004346
Or it could be as some have suggested - that Ralph is actually a closet liberal.He has been out of the closet for years now. He is an idiot and an asshole. Sorry, there is no better description.
It is too bad for the Conservatives that Ralphie is most likely right.
Uncle Ralphy needs his brain medication again...
As I said, I do think he's right about the minority government. I just don't think it will be the Liberals in power. It would boggle the mind if they somehow won.
Even if the Conservatives manage to get a minority government, can you really see the NDP and the Bloc working together to prop it up against the Liberals? Jack Layton is more likely to work with the Liberals (as has been evidenced in the last year and a half) than he would be willing to work with the conservatives. Can you really see NDP members voting in a budget which slashes taxes, cuts funding to social programmes and paves the way for private health care? And can you really see the Bloc standing for Harper's shenagins for very long?Ruth, even if you are right about a minority Conservative government, I highly doubt they will last much longer than Joe Clark or Kim Campbell. Good Luck!
